When building for the Mac App Store we ran up against a restriction which states that applications cannot request the user to enter their password to authenticate admin tasks. We rely on this for allowing Awaken to schedule wake up times so that your Mac wakes at alarm time. To get around this we separated the wake up scheduling function into a separate application "AwakenHelper" which you can download for free via the Awaken page. AwakenHelper runs in your menu bar and takes care of waking your Mac and launching Awaken at alarm time if it isn't already running. We also added the ability for this tool to power on your Mac. AwakenHelper will monitor your Awaken alarm database in the background and automatically schedule the correct wake up times.
